lene- since we are living the same life, let's just partner up and I'll do your stuff for 2 days, and then we'll switch. That way we could have blissful days off in between. LOL I can dream. I have been feeling so overwhelmed by...life. Nothing bad or crazy is going on, and yet I just feel BLAH!

chickadee- the list looks awesome! I haven't had an actual weight goal...just timeline, so I need to do this!

nikkidee- sounds like a great day! I love when the scale bumps down, even a smidge.

ratc- I tried the Zumba on wii, and it was super-similar to the YMCA class version. I was surprised, b/c I find most wii stuff isn't a great workout. I'd love to hear about the DVDs. Zumba is my THANG right now.

Today was SO weird. I woke up in a fog. Couldn't work ot very well. I was straight up dying after running a mile. Just grumpy and blech. Not really hungry, either, though, so I pray I'm not getting sick. My family has been ill 3 times this summer, which is unheard of for us. I can't take another sickness and trying to suck it up while working out and dieting. My kiddos need to stop picking up germs from camp and the Y. ;-)

Ugh all my weigh-in's this week have been either 0 change or a gain. I know it's the week before TOM, but still. Definitely a sign I need to step it up with the OP eating, exercising, and water!

Loli- I never noticed whether I bolated or not until I lost 20 pounds. Holy McSchmoly...last month I was up 4 pounds for a week and I looked like I had swallowed a small child. LOL It was so weird! I guess when I was bigger, it just didn't make as much of a difference. Blah!

I'm down 1/2 a pound after a few days of being up.

Haha loli. That happens to me every once in a while. So yucky!

I need to look up this wii zumba. I use my wii for yoga, but thats about it.

We've been exercising and eating decent. No soda! Which is basically a miracle.

Clocked in this morning a 167.6. down about 2.5 lbs!

Keep up the good work everyone!!

Ugh, TOM... *shakes fist* Well, at least I didn't see a gain, though stagnating is never fun. Still at 146.2.

chickadee -- Thanks for putting together the list!

Katybug -- I'm not doing that well either. Scale has stay put or moved UP this week until today. TOM's next week for me though, so I'm attributing it partially to that. *sigh* However, if you do stay on plan, you'll likely see a great loss after this week!

nikkidee -- You did the 30 day shred video twice in one day? Mad props. That video is intense. Good luck w/wii zumba. I've done live classes and DVDs and zumba is a lot of fun.

Chickiechicks -- I know this is random but, have your kids gotten the TDAP vaccine? Whooping cough has been going around California Anyhow, I've heard that fitness helps your immune system, so keep it up!

loli -- Haha. Drink a lot of water! I think the biggest difference I've ever seen (due to TOM bloating) was 12 pounds. In one day. Crazy.

xxkaleidoscopic -- Lots of posts about TOM recently. It's tough being a woman!

As for me, I finally saw a (small) loss this morning, after either no change or (small) gains all this week. Am hoping it's mostly bloating from the week before TOM, so I'm upping my water and watching what I eat extra carefully.

Does anyone else get excited about WI's at the end of TOM? I know losses are mostly water weight at that time, but I love seeing the scale move down!

8/3 166.1
8/4 165.6 (-.5)

Congrats on the losses Chichi, Nikki, Rat and Firefoxy!!!

Chichi, I hope your blah mood went away. I get like that too sometimes for no rhyme or reason. I love the idea of switching places I'm going to go get a massage by Ryan Reynolds on my days off


Loli, Katie and xxkaleidoscopic good luck with TOM. Try to drink your water and stay on plan and I'm sure your efforts will be rewarded.

As for me, I ran/walked 1/2 hr this AM and did a 45 min walk in the PM. Plus took the kids shopping and walked around the mall for way TOO long. I had raisin bran for b-fast, an apple, 1/2 a subway sub for lunch, a rice krispie treat, 97% ff turkey chili for dinner and zucchini bread for dinner. Too many carbs, me thinks. I'm sure the scale will let me know tomorrow!

Ugh. Ate awful yesterday!! Work luncheon = greasy pizza. Then I left late and didn't have time to make the turkey chili I had planned...and family did Qdoba instead. I hate that their salads have so many calories!! Anywho, the crap from yesterday and all the salt put me pack up 1.7 lbs this morning Still down about 1.5 for the month so far, but will be doing protein bars for breakfast and lunch today, and extra workout time tonight!! Can't let one bad day get me down, right!?

lene- Ooo Ryan Reynolds....drool-worthy! I've never, ever, ever had a Hollywood crush, even as a teen. But I now consistenly dream of Alexander Skarsgaard. (from True Blood). It's shameful how much I think of him. LOL

Firefoxy- I'm not sure about TDAP, but my kids awlays get every vaccine they offer. We're military and it's just easier to go along with the program. Congrats on a small loss...every smidge helps. After the TOM bloat ceases, it's SO awesome seeing that big drop on the scale.

Wen to my fave Zumba class today with a friend trying to break into the weight-loss lifestyle. We had to leave 20 minutes early due to childcare stuff, but I still got a great workout. Then we hit the pool with the kids and a packed picnic lunch. It was a great way to end an otherwise blah week. I'm ready to be back to my fun self!

Any big plans this weekend?
